Opened in 1929, Old Orchard Country Club has a classic design with challenges that stand up to modern golf courses. Throughout the course, you'll see traces of the site's former use as a farm. Ancient apple trees from the original orchard frame many of the holes. The diverse layout will test you with a variety of different shots but the gently rolling terrain makes for an easy walk. Skill and strategy will be generously rewarded but it's not an overly punishing layout for the high handicapper. Old Orchard's greens play true and fast and they are often flanked with strategically positioned bunkers. A stream wanders through the golf course, coming into play on several holes. Golfers will face a tricky island green on the par-5 seventh hole as well as an almost-island green on the par-4 13th.

1st time out this year

Been playing this course for over 30 yrs. Today played front 9. 3pm tee off. Had the course pretty much to ourselves. Sunny, windy. Course was in good shape, greens where just aerate , tees good, fairways good. As season gets going, course will get better. The help is always friendly. Will be back next week. Usually play here 3-4 times a month. Fairways & Greens.

It works.

It works if you are near the shore. Grass is well kept except for random spots every hole for repair. Greens are horrible and bounce on putts. Old carts and no amenities (water, ball cleaners, hole distance are hard to find)

Mr

Course was very rough shape. Greens were terrible.
The Golf Course should have paid us to play.

The course was in poor shape

While the course layout is good, the course itself is in need of a substantial, amount of work. Greens were just aerated so that made putting difficult. The grass on fairways and tees were uncut. Traps hadn't been raked. Further there were no rakes in the traps for players to rake. Perhaps it's just early in the season.

3 carts and 5 hours later - will never return

Hole 1 cart battery died. 2nd cart battery died on hole 8 and 3rd cart battery died which lead my foursome to walk on the back 9. We weren’t the only group ditching dead carts. The pace of play was incredibly slow as people were hauling their bags across the course. The fairways and greens looked well walked on as your ball never had a good lie anyway. Give this course a while to hopefully charge their batteries and refresh their fairways before returning.
